One Napa family brings pandemic project to new heights
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Sean and Michael LaRochelle found a unique DIY project to help pass the time.“My brother walked outside with me to the backyard and he said Michael, we are going to build the Matterhorn”, Michael LaRochelle recalls. “He said; we saw a backyard roller coaster on YouTube and we were like, we can do that, but better”, partner John Eggers adds. Raised into a family of Disney fans, the brothers chose Disneyland’s Matterhorn for inspiration of their backyard coaster.“The Matterhorn is one of my favorites, absolutely”, LaRochelle plainly states. Over four months, a group of family and friends came together to turn this dream into a reality.
